Seriously you guys, I love this car. Genesis has created a fantastic AWD sport sedan with the G70. Also, even just KNOWING that you can get this car in a manual with RWD and an LSD gives me the tingles... Enjoy the V6 in this video and Subscribe!! ( A note on the bolster function that I was complaining about: They return to the 'default' (whatever you saved as your seat setting) setting after releasing sport mode, but only after opening up all the way first. So if you like a tight bolster feel all the time, just disable the sport bolster function in the menu. ) -SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE THROTTLE HOUSE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyXiDU5qjfOPxgOPeFWGwKw?sub_confirmation=1 -Check out the Throttle House website for lots more content! http://thethrottlehouse.com/ Want swag?

It makes sense: One company makes ultra-desirable performance cars and has ambitious plans for electric powertrains. The other company makes ultra-desirable and rare supercars that happen to already have electric powertrains. So Porsche announced Wednesday that it has bought a 10 percent stake in Croatian sports car company Rimac Automobili. In addition to its supercars, Rimac builds EV powertrain components and battery systems, so Porsche isn't just investing. It hopes to create a development partnership for EV technology, an area of business that founder Mate Rimac has planned to grow for some time now. Porsche meanwhile is full speed ahead, along with the rest of VW Group, toward hybrids and pure EVs such as the Taycan (nee Mission E), and is setting up a network of hundreds of fast chargers. In less than 10 years, Rimac has built his company from a freshman effort in his own garage to a producer of some of the most exotic sports cars in the world. First came the Concept One, made most famous when "The Grand Tour" presenter Richard Hammond lost control of one and crashed it. Now Rimac is hard at work on the Concept Two, revealed earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. It's a grand tourer, but the scenery is going to be a blur: The C Two is promised to produce nearly 2,000 horsepower for a top speed of well over 250 mph. Here's a photo Porsche provided of CEO Oliver Blume and Rimac sealing the deal: Porsche's press release on its Rimac partnership points out some other significant numbers on the C Two, too — a range of 400 miles, and the ability to reach an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes from a 250 kW fast-charging system. Those are attributes Porsche is surely quite interested in. "Rimac has impressively demonstrated its credentials in the field of electromobility," said Lutz Meschke, deputy board chairman at Porsche. "We feel that Rimac's ideas and approaches are extremely promising, which is why we hope to enter into close collaboration with the company in the form of a development partnership." "This partnership now is an important step for Rimac on our way to become a component and system supplier of choice for the industry in electrification, connectivity and the exciting field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems," Mate Rimac said. Rimac has about 400 employees. In addition to cars and EV tech, it also produces a pretty cool e-bike we took a ride on, under its subsidiary Greyp Bikes.

Think of an Aston Martin DB5 in a Bond film, and you're likely to think of "Goldfinger" — the film and the car are forever linked in cinema history. But it's not the only Bond film with a DB5 chase, as the producers were eager to establish Pierce Brosnan as a credible Sean Connery equivalent, and put him in a DB5 on a mountain road in 1995's "GoldenEye." There was no white Mustang to chase in "GoldenEye," as Brosnan's Bond played with a red, reportedly rented Ferrari F355 driven by Famke Janssen. A few years after the film's premiere, in 2001, the DB5 was sold for $200,000. That doesn't sound fantastical for a Bond car, but at the time it was the most expensive piece of Bond memorabilia ever sold. At the end of the decade, the actual "Goldfinger" DB5 sold for roughly $4 million, which is unlikely to be topped by the "GoldenEye" car this summer. The car is not a barn-find or a lost cinema classic, either, as it has been on display in several museums such as the National Motor Museum in Britain. Bonhams will be auctioning this DB5 on July 13 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The car's estimated at $1.6 million to $2.14 million, which is still half or less than half of what the "Goldfinger" car brought in. Still, it's a silver Aston Martin with actual cinema history, and it's believably one of the reasons why restored classic Astons still get resprayed in Silver Birch.Automotive Cars News,Automotive Cars News,Automotive,dragon box, db5, kodi, db4, dragonbox, area 51, exodus, streaming box, amazon, fire stick, android, xbmc, cable, dragon, wizard, setup, stream, digi, player, media, streaming, apple tv, roku, cable cutter, cut the cord
Model Preview For 2018, Kia took a huge step into the premium sedan market with its Stinger. For 2019, the car, for the most part, be a carryover model, save for a new limited-production version. Looks-wise, we expect the Stinger lineup will be virtually identical to the current model. Given this is just the Stinger’s second model year, this lack of change shouldn’t come as a surprise. With us expecting minimal change, we also anticipate no changes to the Stinger’s list of standard features. We expect it to include 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, a 7-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, and more. There is one big change for 2019. We’re talking about the 500-unit Stinger Atlantica. Kia will base this model on the range-topping GT2 AWD model and pack it with tons of exclusive features, including a Deep Chroma Blue paint job, 19-inch wheels borrowed from the European model, and a large “Stinger” trunk badge inspired by the Korean-spec model. Other range-topping features will include Espresso Brown Nappa leather, suede-like headliner, surround-view camera, wireless phone charger, heated rear outboard seats, and “Stinger Atlantica” badges on the center console and both fenders. Under its hood, we anticipate no changes for the 2019 Stinger. We expect its base engine to remain a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. We also expect the optional 3.3-liter V6 to remain the same at 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will continue with an eight-speed automatic transmission and optional all-wheel drive. The IIHS has yet to test the 2018 Stinger for safety, but with optional automatic emergency braking, it qualifies for a Top Safety Pick rating. That is, of course, if it can hold up structurally. Stay tuned for updates on this. Pricing & Release Date The 2019 Kia Stinger Atlantica and the entire 2019 Stinger lineup will hit showrooms this summer. Pricing isn’t available yet, but we don’t expect the standard Stinger lineup’s prices to vary much from the 2018 model, which ranges from $32,800 to $52,300 (destination fees included). As for the 500-unit Stinger Atlantica, it will likely exceed the $53,300 price tag on the GT2 AWD model it’s ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank for watching Please Subcribe : https://goo.gl/WhEg37 Facebook: https://goo.gl/d5XjSy G+ : https://goo.gl/UZAfH3 https://www.instagram.com/dani_balasio/ Tumblr: https://goo.gl/AU77Iz https://twitter.com/Sports_car_new ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please contact this email if you have any copyright issues: email@example.com
Considering I'm about to throw a bunch of caveats, small gripes, and unflattering anecdotes about this car at you, I want to preface this by saying the rear-wheel-drive Stinger GT does enough well that I actually spent some time with the configurator building one to, perhaps, serve as a family car that can haul ass as well as a bunch of stuff.
And people, too, in five-person comfort, with an infant child seat in the mix. There's a lot of bargain-basement Audi S7 appeal to the thing, and it feels even quicker than its 0-60 number of 4.7 seconds would indicate. Another highlight: the Brembo brakes, 13.8 inches up front clamped by four-piston calipers, and 13.4 inches in the rear. They are superb.
The liftback is a nice touch, adding some extra capacity without a wagon profile that would make it allergic to sales. I put it through a daunting real-world test: a big stroller, a giant box of diapers, two backpacks, two rolling suitcases, and a couple armfuls of baby toys.
With a little creative stacking it all went in without causing passenger compartment intrusion. With further rearrangement, there was even room to deal with a truly distressing diaper crisis — the GT dealt elegantly with this inelegant situation.
The Ceramic Silver paint (one of a frustratingly slim selection of exterior colors) didn't dull the Stinger GT's impact much. It's one of the most handsome and understated colors available, and even so, it drew a lot of attention. Fresh from baby-carrying (and changing) duties, I took it to a SCCA Track Night in America event at the Ridge circuit near Shelton, Wash., where the liftback cargo area swallowed a tub full of tools and a racing helmet with plenty of room to spare. Hell, a set of four rims with track tires could've fit, too. Despite a strong field of interesting cars in attendance, everyone wanted to ask about the Stinger. I feel this color dampens some of the car's over-styling — it would look just as aggressive with fewer faux vents — and displays the unconventional taillights well.
Speaking of Track Night, after about an hour of track time spread over three individual sessions (not bad for just $150), the Stinger GT never felt fully comfortable in its dynamic skin. It had the scoot to top 130 mph on the front straight, and the brakes to haul it down before a super fun series of uphill S-curves immediately afterwards. However, certain situations caught the Stinger out. A track isn't the Stinger GT's natural environment, but a twisty road certainly might be, so stiffer dampers (especially in the rear) would help keep the tail from twitching during abrupt changes in road camber, or hitting imperfections. Small shift paddles and a somewhat lazy shift response from the automatic in manual shift were aggravating enough that I left it in auto mode — a very rare occurrence.Automotive Cars news, Automobile Classics, SuperCarTube, CAR TV, 2019 Kia Stinger Atlantica, Kia on Ice, Kia Stinger GT, Stinger, Kia, Stinger GT, 2018 Kia Stinger, 2019 Kia Stinger GT, sofyan bey, redline reviews, 2theredline, 2theredlinellc, redline, redline review, Crusted Butte, Ice track, Snow track, winter driving, winter tires,kia, kia stinger, stinger, 2018 Kia Stinger GT, Kia Stinger GT, sedan, gt, 2018, 2019, interior, exterior, car, cars, kia stinger gt review,
